M1. …explain and apply the use of elementary probability theory, such as combinatoric probability theory, conditional probability, independence;
M2. …explain and apply probability distributions of one or more random variables, (discrete) conditional probabilities, and compute expectation, variance, and correlation coefficient;
M3. …explain and apply basic discrete and continuous distributions, including binomial, geometric, Poisson, uniform, exponential and normal distributions.
